“Outward-looking and forward-thinking”, Frensham focuses on the girls’ boarding experience and prides itself on “moving beyond traditional structures and breaking new ground for Australian schools”, and the website powerfully assists in conveying this ethos. The homepage pulls the visitor in, its slideshow filtered with the school’s brilliant purple colour, and featuring an exciting array of quick-linked news boxes.
Award-Winning Websites for Schools
With over 100 design awards, we help Australian independent schools market and connect their communities online with a mobile-first website.
The homepage, featuring vibrant and candid photography, neat grid layout, quick-links and clean socially linked header gives the visitor an immediate taste of what life is like at the school, and the drop down navigation allows clear access to the site interior. The sticky footer design offers a clear sense of location with its Google map layering and custom regional locator, while side banners make for further ease of navigation.
The school’s vivid red colours shine on the homepage, which dazzles with its fixed photo backdrop and highly visual grid layout featuring quick-linked event and news boxes. Social media plays a key role in the Mentone community, with featured posts on the homepage and links in the footer, which also offers user-friendliness for the prospective parent through its ‘Enquire’, ‘Apply’, ‘Contact’ buttons.
